I have said numerous times over and over again that confidence should be the first thing that you should put on in the mornings, that’s before deodorant, a t-shirt and boxers. Be un-phased by questions that others have or inconsiderate looks, especially if people are hasty in those notions.
We all grow in style little by little each day and each year, take pride in your appearance and always try to put your best foot forward. If that means that you consistently dressing better than your friends, or people in your office — then so be it. As the old adage goes, “When you look good, you feel good”, which is very true. One important thing to remember about clothes is that they are clothes, they should exemplify the qualities that you already have and shouldn’t compensate or make up for anything that you feel like you are lacking.
Guys, have fun and don’t let anyone rain on your parade. Dress with confidence and work hard to look your best day in and day out.
Leather conditioner for old shoes that are on their last leg truly works wonders. Use this or a similar product regularly to keep your shoes in great condition.

Waterproofing is somewhat of a must that should be done to suede shoes (note: one time is not enough) simply because you never know when you may be caught in the rain. Waterproofing does not mean that your shoe is completely water-resistant, this is one of the reasons why you need to apply this protectant numerous times over a course of time.
Things to remember about waterproofing (application):
- Pre-clean the shoes before applying the protectant (use either a dry cloth or brush)
- Fully wet the shoe using the solution, do not leave any area dry
- Allow the shoes to dry completely for at least 24 hours
